Come one, come all to The Endometriosis Summit’s Patient and Practitioner Town Meeting. This year we are challenging the underpinnings of endometriosis with panels and discussions. Our signature event features panels on policy, surgery, gaslighting, exercise and endometriosis and an all patient panel on life with endometriosis. We gather the endometriosis community to change the narrative of endometriosis. For those who have the disease, those who treat the disease, and those who love and support people with endometriosis this is the place to roar and be a societal disruptor. There is a patient lead panel, based in lived experience and research on gaslighting. We investigate athletics, exercise and endometriosis. All in our Town Hall, Open Mic format.
*Please note, Endo Summit Town Meeting discussions are for theory and education—not personal case discussion.
